THE TRIPLE CROWN - Once More In 2024!
THIS EVENT WAS SUCH A SUCCESS IN 2023, WE ARE OFFERING IT AGAIN! GET 3 DIFFERENT SETS OF INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR ALPACA'S 2024 FLEECE BY ENTERING IT IN THESE 3 COMPETITIONS!

  • Enter the AOA National IFA competition occurring immediately prior to the Suri Network Fleece Show
  • Enter the same fleece in the Regular Suri Network Fleece Show
  • Enter the Suri Network Spin-Off- we will pull the sample for the Spin Off competition after it has been judged in the Regular Fleece Show.

    To save exhibitors shipping expenses and to provide an opportunity for them to compete in 3 different events with a single fleece, we are offering to take the Spin-Off sample from the fleece entered in the Regular Fleece Show and ship it to Maureen Macedo for competition in the Spin-Off.

SPIN-OFF COMPETITION:
The Suri Network is excited to once again have AOA certified Spin-Off Judge Maureen Macedo judging our Spin-Off Competition. Maureen is a talented hand-spinner and fiber artist. As an alpaca owner she understands how important it is to have feedback on your Spin-Off sample.

"The Handcrafter's Spin-Off competition is an opportunity for the exhibitor to enter a sample weighing between 2 and 4 ounces of fleece which is evaluated on criteria relevant to the production of finished goods, rules generally follow the rules for Fleece Shows according to breed, age divisions, Color Groups, and class size." (from the AOA Show System Handbook)

Any fleece shorn after January 1st of 2023 is eligible to compete.

Please read pages 65 through page 67 of the AOA Show System Handbook for additional information.
